Michael Page returned to top form with another spectacular victory at Bellator 258, breaking Derek Anderson’s nose with a front kick to the face at 3:57 of the first round.
Anderson made it to the end of the round but ringside doctors waved the fight off after taking a closer look at ‘The Barbaric’s’ nose in between rounds.
Bellator posted the video on social media shortly after Page was declared victorious.

This marks ‘MVP’s’ fifth straight victory since the London Shootfighter was knocked out by three-time Bellator welterweight champion Douglas Lima in their 2019 world grand prix semi-final bout at Bellator 221. Page called for a rematch with Lima in his post-fight interview but didn’t call out ‘The Phenom’ by name.
Lima, 33, is scheduled to defend his welterweight title against No. 1-ranked contender Yaroslav Amosov (25-0) at Bellator 260 on June 11 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
